The 70th-anniversary celebrations for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights kicked off at the Théâtre national de la Danse under the patronage of the President of the National Assembly, Richard Ferrand.
During this event, African creators tackled the human rights issue in Africa through a heartfelt and hopeful exchange with non-African artists frequently featured in the Théâtre national de la Danse’s programming. The Chaillot stage welcomed original choreographic dialogues, inspired by the “Refugees on the Move” workshops organized by the African Artists for Development endowment fund in African refugee camps. This exceptional artistic and creative dialogue included the first public presentation of Freddy Tsimba’s work Porteuse de Vies, which was unveiled that morning on the main staircase at the Chaillot.
Featuring artists: Taigue Ahmed, Carolyn Carlson, Marcia Barcellos, Annabelle Bonnery, Fabrice Bwabulamutima, James Carlès, Serge Kakudji, Magic System, Aliocha Regnard, and more.
